. the problem with the west coast is it is storm after storm that is going to pound california and oregon and washington state. you can see the next one is already making its way onshore, and we are looking at heavy rain, especially across northern california. you can see a closer look. that band of heavy rain just to the west of northern california, that's going to move onshore, and we are going to see a series of these rounds of heavier pockets of rain move in, especially this afternoon. winds will get gusty as well. we had a lot of delays yesterday because of the bad weather out in california. we will most likely see more of those today. look at some of the expected rainfall totals over the next 48 hours. we could end up with some parts of northern california, just north of redding, possibly picking up more than a foot of rainfall out of this system, and it does look like that will continue for most of the week. lynn? >> dylan, thanks so much. >>> and for the rest of us, it was another day of facing the fiscal cliff. white house negotiators head to capitol hill today. they're going to
spots really back across the west coast. storm after storm is going to pound california, oregon, and washington state. closer to home, albany is seeing snow right now. it's lake-effect snow coming off lake ontario stretching all the way into the birkshires of massachusetts. so we are seeing some snowfall across the northeast. it is just like a fact of nature. elsewhere, we're going to see that rain out towards california continue to move on shore. we saw a lot of airport delays yesterday. also some mountain snow is likely. as far as rainfall totals, we are actually going to see in the next 48 hours perhaps more than five or six inches of rain, especially across northern california into southwestern oregon. seattle could pick up a couple inches of that rain as well. again, we're looking at another storm to make its way on west coast later on this afternoon. that one should be stronger than the storm we saw yesterday. here in the northeast with the gorgeous view behind me, things are looking fantastic near downtown looking at the christmas tree. lynn? >> thanks so much. >> dianne

with. the presiding officer: without objection. the senator from california. mrs. boxer: mr. president, i have listened to the senator from ohio, and i really want to be heard because he's talking about the fiscal cliff and how upset he is at the thought that the wealthiest people in america might go back to the tack rates we had under bill clinton when we had the greatest prosperity, we had 23 million new jobs, and we balanced the budget to the point where we even had a surplus. and my friend comes down here and he's complaining that the proposal on the table would give 98% of the people a tax cut, and he's upset that 2% of the people might have to go back to the rates under bill clinton. well, i just want to say something. we just had an election. we had a big election. we had a tough election. we had an expensive election. and one of the major parts of that election revolved around what do we do about the deficits, what do we do about economic growth, what do we do about spending, and we discussed it in the senate races, we discussed it in the house races, and of course president ob

to go into cardiac arrest. >> reporter: california highway patrolmen say the actions, the stop and the tasering were within policy guidelines. a 30-year law enforcement veteran says it's essential for police to give suspects clear instruction and there's one thing he doesn't understand. >> it's unusual for an officer to put somebody back in their car if they feel they're still in danger. a reasonable officer wouldn't have done that. >> a drug test found thc in her blood, but it's not clear whether she smoked pot that night. her criminal case is expected to go to trial next year. and a multimillion civil suit against the california highway patrol is being prepared. miguel marques, cnn, los angeles. >> and we received this response from taser tonight. we are concerned about this incident and eagerly await for more information. it's tadangerously speculative not impossible to make a medical diagnosis from a youtube video in which we can't see exactly what happened. >>> u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, she spent a second day answering questions from republican senators. but

was in california yesterday, and i did see that, i saw people going to nevada, a neighbor state where the tax situation is not as onerous, and, it is really going on but here with the mobility if our country in the various income tax rates that are different but the company is trending higher. what do more well to do folks do? >>guest: well, of course, california comes to florida the difference between england and the united states, in great britain you can by living a year abroad and coming back for 89 years, you can get out of the income tax and capital gains. in the united states, you are a tax captive worldwide for life but can you escape the huge taxes on spending and sales tax and of course all the charges and fees that the governments now charge in addition to the taxes. so an american can escape somewhat but not as effectively as the british. when margaret thatcher reduced the tax we saw an explosion of enterprise and of course a wave of tax revenue came rolling in. we were able to have a debt repayment schedule and the tax emigres came back from the tax havens that remain in the brit

, from california or nevada to buy a ticket, right? >> that's correct, especially in arizona. >> all right. so what are the logistics now? if you are the person out there and you've got that winning ticket or what you believe to be the winning ticket, what steps should you take immediately? >> the first thing you should do is sign the back of your ticket. because until you do that, if you happen to lose it, it could be anyone's ticket. once you sign it, that's your ticket. first of all, take a deep breath, enjoy the moment, your life is changing right now. and then take some time, get some good financial advice. have a lawyer, get a financial adviser, decide what your plan of action is going to be, and then come forward to the lottery and claim your ticket. >> and i like the way you put that, sue. that's the order you should proceed in. you should not be running forward and telling everybody you've got the ticket and then worrying about legal things and financial things. set your team in place first. >> that's correct. that's correct. >> and we should also mention this morning, sue,
. coming to us tonight from berkeley is university of california professor harley shaken who specializes in labor issues. glad to welcome you inside the war room. >> very glad to be here. >> let's talk about this hostess thing. there was a disagreement between two of the hostess unions, the bakers and the teamsters, one wanted to take the deal, the other did not. many in the media are blaming this for the bankruptcy. do you think that's fair? >> i don't. i think it really misses the target of what's going on here. this is really about a company that was a 1950's, let alone 1970's icon, combined with 21st century hedge funds and the result has been bad disastrous for the company tragic for the workers and harmful for communities and the economy. >> well, the company was asking, if i understood this right, they were asking the bakers to take a 50% pay cut from i think $48,000 a year to $24,000 a year. this was over a couple of stems. this was going on while the c.e.o. wants to pay executives nearly $2 million in bonuses. that disparity, of course, is a great affront to those who are workin
has been a failed revenue source, across the country. whether it is massachusetts, california, across the country. that money you talked about is a small portion of the money. it represents 4% of the total spending of the municipal budgets across massachusetts. >> i mean, but it is nearly a billion dollars that otherwise wouldn't be there, going to very important local causes. what is actually wrong with that? >> but if you had sales -- that money comes from $4.7 billion worth of sales, lottery sales. if that money was spent on other forms of products and services in our economy, the return, the economic growth from that would be immensely higher, they talk about not making the money from a small amount of players. the new york times, reports that 80% of lottery money comes from lottery players. it is a predatory business, and it is a deception. >> there is one exception i would take to that. here is the facts, is that lotteries in states began to do lotteries because people have a desire. we do $68 million in lottery business in fiscal year 2012, more than the movie and music industr
nominated yet. >> keep that in mind. >> adam schiff is a democrat from california and a senior member on the house intelligence committee. we'll get to susan rice. but i want to start with the fiscal cliff. 15 days before christmas break. it's time to go to woncht politico reporting the parameters of a deal here. in the wall street journal it says the president may have flexibility on the issue of the tax rate increase. president barack obama signalled he wouldn't insist tax rates on upper income americans rise to clinton era peaks as part of the deal. the white house's flexibility first described by erskine bowles after meetings with mr. obama and others confirmed by administration officials could envision tax rates increasing from current levels to less than clinton era levels. so 37, 38%, is that enough for you? >> i would like to see the bush tax cuts for the upper income go away completely. with many people, myself included we don't want to negotiate against ourselves at the moment. there is going to have to be give and take. this will be a compromise. neither party can do it alo
the time they were little boys in southern california. they decided they were going to skip this season, an entire nfl season. andrea, the life of a normal nfl career is only about 3 1/2 years. they were willing to skip this whole season to make their pi pilgrimage to mecca. they are -- i've met a lot of athletes from a lot of different sports. i've never met guys willing to do what they did this season. >> i was fascinated by what they had to say about the role of women in islam. this is really -- we'll all be watching "rock center" continue. mary carillo, thank you so much. don't miss "leap of faith" tonight on "rock center" with brian williams at 10:00/9:00 central on your nbc station. >>> an online sensation. an arizona tourist's photo captured the moment. officer lawrence di primeaux said he saw the man freezing. the officer says he will keep the receipt in his vest to remind himself sometimes others, indeed, have it worse. wasn't my daughter's black bean soup spectacular?

" and you come forward and you celebrate. in arizona there is no power wall in california, utah, and nevada so the winner in arizona may not be from arizona because people were flooding over to see if they could play with that jackpot. arizona gets $25,000, the store that sold the ticket and in missouri they get $50,000, and that is strictly because of state regulation. nothing else. >>shepard: this lottery created a bunch of millionaires. >>trace: on top of the two huge tickets, there were eight other tickets that everyone worth $2 million and 58 tickets that were worth $1 million. remember, remember yolanda vega said do not use your special dates, anniversaries. look at those numbers, all under 30, and lottery experts say this is a very good chance the winners likely used their special dates. if this ticket or tickets were bought by groups, here is legal advice. >> when you have the winning ticket, you have to go to an attorney and have an agreement written up that each individual is responsible for their proportional share because you have had a couple of unpleasant cases where the purch
. most of northern california is expecting 8 to 10 inches of rain by sunday. that spells flood watches. they're already out for several areas. the wind speeds also could reach up to 70 miles per hour. that means trees could be toppled and also brings down power lines and creates a lot of problems for residents. so workers have been doing what you're seeing on your screen right now. dragging away scorched trees to prevent them from actually causing the problems and also prevent landslides. also, it is very hot in the rockies and central plains right now. temperatures, believe it or not, 20 to 25 degrees above normal for the next five days. and for people who live there, the temperatures are not expected to go back to normal until the middle of the week. so we're keeping a really close eye on some of this nasty weather, and troubling weather, as well. whether it is on the west coast or on the east coast, because a young lady named lindsey lohan is brewing up yet another storm in the form of trouble. i.e., another arrest. we usually just shy away from this, because it's become a bit commo
postgraduate school in monterey, california. officials say they deliberately mismanaged money. rear admiral charles goet this month relieved of duty as a strike group sailing in the middle east. a military official told cnn there were multiple complaints about him from sub ord nents. 23 officers removed so for this year, marines six, the army 11. the most serious case, army brigadier general sinclaire charged with sexual assault. the navy told us no matter how embarrassing it gets with the relatively high numbers, it's going to continue to announce when it relieves commanders of duty because they say with those ships at sea far from home, if a commander isn't doing his job appropriately, the lives of thousands of sailors could be at risk. so they're willing to put the information out there. the president gets a report from the pentagon this weekend, wolf, about what to do about all of this. >> let us know what he decides to do about it. he's the commander in chief. barbara, thank you. turns out some of hollywood's brightest stars have more political clout than others. who they are, how they
massachusetts, california, or his home state and there's no such thing as a romney republic anymore. he doesn't have any power. so he's coming today obama looked good because he's sticking out his hand and shows a spirit of bipartisanship that he's trying to create throughout all of this gridlock. >> matt, are they still stunned? i have to tell you, i watch this stuff from 7:00 until midnight. i'm constantly trying to figure this thing out. i thought it was much more pro-obama. he won a very solid victory and mandate. are they still stunned by that? >> yeah. in some respects, they are, to grapple with what happened and how their expectations got so high. >> stu stevens thinks that. we're all trying to figure that out. what happened here? >> i think there is a bit of that. and rahm himself, the data guy, going through the numbers trying to figure out what happened himself. i think he will be doing that for a while. i think he still thinks about this an awful lot. >> doug brinkley, author of the great book, "cronkite." it's a good history of recent american history going all the way back to wor

or california. >> the wording goes back to 1986. >> part of passing the 1986 bill, we did it as americans for tax reform. >> the wording of the pledge hasn't changed. in 1986 when people first signed that pledge, the federal budget deficit was $220 billion. this year, $1.1 trillion, how can you say nothing has changed? >> lots have changed. bush focused not on spending. the pledge only does certain things. the pledge makes tax increases more difficult at the state level, at the national level. you haven't had a republican vote for income tax since 1990 when bush threw away his presidency. 1993 tax increase, only on democratic votes. then no tax increases until 2009 when obama came in and raised taxes with obamacare. >> isn't this -- you are having republican is take a difficult pledge to cut taxes, isn't that like a quarterback saying they like taxes? >> it's a pledge not to increase taxes. people say why don't you toughen it. you don't want to change it because it is a simple guardrail. it doesn't solve the world's problems, it says no net tax increase. >> in your mind when someone signs
favorite cable stations, we can't imagine what happens across america from california to new york, from the furthest state going to the north, to our southern friends. including the great state of texas. every morning, every morning some family, some single mother, some single dad, some mother and father rise at 4 or 5 or 6:00 in the morning and on some tables there may be more than one would expect for breakfast, on some tables there is no breakfast. they rush to prepare for the day's work. they rush sometimes to get their children to schools that are far beyond bus stops. and the reason why i say that is, many school districts have even cut out school buses. so that means that these hardworking americans have to rush and get their children to school. and they go off to jobs that are eight, 10, 12 hours long. where they work all day. maybe they had someone, a grandmother or someone, pick up the child, maybe they did not. and therefore they have to either have extended public care or wind up picking up those children, but what i will say to you is that they toil and work every day. so t
